The Tiger is the third of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Ox set off the night before and was first. Tiger arrived early the next morning and was second. Rat secretly climbed onto Ox and jumped down when he saw the Jade Emperor. Ox and Tiger were pushed back to second and third. Despite his protests, Tiger could only settle with being the third zodiac.
